Jeffrey Michael Bays is a contributor to MovieMaker Magazine, Peter Marshall's Directors Chair, and is best known for writing and producing the award-winning radio satire 'Not From Space' (2003) on XM Satellite Radio. This pioneering audio production was recently listed by Time Out magazine as among the top five essential radio plays of all time. Jeffrey was born and raised in mid-Missouri to parents from the US Navy. Being from the Midwest gives him a homespun sense of humor that permeates all of his creative endeavors, but at the same time a pioneering drive to reach beyond and find new ideas to explore. After the first XM Radio broadcast, he journeyed to Australia to make his first feature film, 'Offing David.' It was this homage to Alfred Hitchcock which inadvertently launched Jeffrey as an expert on Hitchcock cinematic techniques, creating the world's foremost website on the subject. Jeffrey holds an MA in Cinema from La Trobe University in Melbourne.
